Computer and Information Science


The Computer and Information Science program at East-West University puts forth great emphasis on technical and professional education that merges the academic course work with relevant “hands-on” laboratory experiences.  The study of Computer Science is the combination of computation and solving information-based problems in the world by the application of theoretical and practical techniques.  The study involves well-organized methodologies and skills of programming, scripting languages, algorithms, databases, networking, security and cryptography, computer architecture, operating systems, web information retrieval, artificial intelligence, software techniques, digital media, data warehousing and business intelligence development.


The courses in this program are designed to prepare students with the requisite theoretical, technical and practice knowledge for a professional or technology-related career.


The Computer and Information Science program is dedicated to bridging the gap between academic pursuits and technical competencies required in the business environment.  The program provides a wide range of courses to lay the foundation for further studies and graduate work.
